USASEF @USAScienceFest #XSTEM Photos and more

Adafruit 2018 0284-1

Almost 2 weeks ago, we hosted the nation’s largest celebration of STEM! Over the 4-day celebration, 370,000 attendees visited the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The theme for the USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo, presented by Lockheed Martin, was “STEM Can Take You” which offered the incredible opportunity for attendees to experience the wonder of STEM with thousands of hands-on activities, interactive stage shows, one-on-one discussions with scientists and engineers and so much more!

Some of the key highlights included the Career Predictor with Lockheed Martin, a forever STEM stamp reveal by the USPS, Honda’s ASIMO, Stanley Black & Decker’s Makerfest, NASA Astronauts, Explosive Science with Dr. Kate Biberdorf, coding with PwC & Black Girls Code and much, much more! Thank you to all of our AMAZING sponsors, exhibitors, performers, speakers, and volunteers! Videos of the stage show performances are coming soon! View more photos on Instagram and Flickr.
